Neil Garfield's disastrous litigation tomfoolery in the case of Zdzislaw E. Maslanka v. Wells Fargo and Embrace, Florida's 17th Circuit Trial Court and 4th District Appeals Court.
Maslanka started Pro Se, then brought in the infamous Neil Garfield, Esq to handle the litigation for him. The result you will see in the 5th amended complaint against Embrace, who loaned Maslanka over $70K for a home, and against Wells Fargo, who whom Embrace sold the loan shortly after making it. I have never seen more frivolous nonsense in a complaint. It seemed to complain about foreclosure, but Maslanka was current on his mortgage payments. It seemed to take issue with the source of the loan money. At least Garfield is not much of a hypocrite, as he has propounded similar nonsense in his LivingLies blog for nearly a decade. In spite of the fervor of Garfield's attack, the trial court approved the motions to dismiss with prejudiced. The appellate panel affirmed the trial court's opinion on 12 May 2016 without explanation and granted the appellants' request for attorney fees. Maslanka worries that he will have to pay them.
As I see it, the trial and appeals courts agree with my estimation of Garfield as a BOZO. His incompetence just cost Maslanka a small fortune.

NEIL GARFIELD CONTINUES TO SCREW HOMEOWNERS
Maslanka called me to discuss what Garfield did to him in his case: Zdzislaw E. Maslanka v. Wells Fargo and Embrace, Florida’s 17th Circuit Trial Court and 4th District Appeals Court. He not only hit him up for over $35K for a nonsensical complaint, he also “stole” money out of his bank account. Moreover, Mr. Maslanka will have to go bankrupt, not to pay the attorney fees of the banks, which most likely will be way over $100k. BTW, this is not the first time I’ve heard from homeowners he has “stole money out of their bank accounts.
